I was driving in Delaware the other day and saw a street sign warning me that I might at any time be swarmed by a flock of autistic children, specifically the silhouettes of autistic children playing football. Evidently the usual 'Autistic Child' street sign wasn't good enough for this street and the added excitement of the game of football was added. But why? What are we to think when casually driving through this sleepy part of Delaware? That we might be chased like a ball or coerced into having a quick game by a maths genius or 20 silhouettes of them? Has it become such a problem in the area that they felt it necessary to sign post it? Has an unwary traveller been set upon on his way through? An epidemic, perhaps? Quelle horreur! If so, what is in the water in Delaware? There IS a nuclear power station down the road and Delaware does boast mosquitos the size of birds (hence the mosquito is referred to as the "state bird" although the Fighting Blue Hen is actually the official State Bird - dwarfed by the resident mosquitos, by the way). In any event, I wonder how the parents of this flock of silhouetted football playing autistic children feel about their loved ones being 'sign posted'. The verb of it. Were I the parent of one I might prefer that he / she retains the right to the surprise attack upon passing motorists - i.e. dont sign post - or perhaps that he / she be better represented not by a footballer but linked to the more gentlemanly of sports, Rugby. I'm looking forward to Delaware sign posting all of it's other silhouetted possibilities on the side of it's roads such as 'Men That Wear Bandanas with Goatee Beards' and other wonderful creations.
